Human Blood Isn't Kosher: Juda (Israel, 2017 - )

Why aren't there any Jewish vampires? Is it because vampiric blood turns the followers of Moses into Blade-like superheroes with awesome soundtracks? This week, the gang heads to Israel for a snappy genre-bending new spin on Dracula and his minions. Also, which mind-melting 80s horror would you rather see remade with Wil Wheaton?

Motion Picture Terror Scale: 1 (Marcus) / 2 (Melissa) / 1+ (Grady). Quality: 4 (Marcus) / 5 (Melissa & Grady). Enjoyment: 5
